Santa Barbara hotels are pricy and we therefore ended up staying at the La Quinta. Overall the hotel is not great. Both our room and our friend's room was not cleaned one day at all. We alerted the manager and the room was barely cleaned the next day, with simply the bed being made, nothing more. The bathroom was sizable...

The staff here was the best. They were very helpful especially the first night when we came in late. The rooms were clean and easy to get to. The only problem is that the air conditioner heater was noisy. It worked very well though.

Great location/convenience to Granada Theater and downtown State Street access! Rooms were remodeled, older building, but updated nicely. We did not make it to the breakfast, but it did look good! Double-bed room was enormous and good size bathroom for whole family of 4!

Hotel is located on the northern portion of the State Street. It's about a 15 minute walk to the heart of the State St area. Parking fee of $10 which is expected for a tourist town like SB. Building is older and shows its age but it's well maintained. Front desk staff were young and not exactly the most professional...

If you are a La Quinta Inns stayer you know that the hotels all up and down the West Coast (and possibly beyond) have been updated over the last year.

Staying at La Quinta served the purpose to be in Santa Barbara downtown. We stayed only for a night on our way to Los Angeles. The building is nice and it has been nicely remodeled.

We stayed here on the tail end of our Thanksgiving week. We stayed for only one night and I booked it on Hotwire, not knowing what I'd be getting. I think we probably paid too much for what we got. It's a big hotel with 2 or more stories and then some bungalows out back. We got put in a...

Santa Barbara is the perfect place for a three day weekend getaway from LA. La Quinta Inn is clean and functional. There's nothing fancy. My litmus test for hotel fanciness is the toiletries in the bathroom. It never fails. The toiletries you get here is a Pantene 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner. I should just stop there because that's enough said...
